"The sincere Christian attitude entails giving up a life that is organized according to one's own desires and ideas - a life that does not count on God and on His will."
(Open Wide the Door to Christ, pg. 87)
“Dear children! I am looking at you and in your hearts I do not see joy. Today I desire to give you the joy of the Risen One, that He may lead you and embrace you with His love and tenderness. I love you and I am praying for your conversion without ceasing before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
"If you feel that you are sinful and weak, you have a special right to Jesus' arms because He is the Good Shepherd, who looks for lost sheep and those who are weak and helpless and who can't keep up with the flock." (The Gift of Faith, pg. 84)
